About us

Scent of Sicily is a team of passionate Sicily lovers, with great local international background, working and improving everyday in order to offer a life experience to every tourist in Sicily. This is our mission: getting you to really meet the wonderful culture, the timeless history and the charming landscape of Sicily. This is why we offer a wide and carefully hand-picked catalogue of Sicily villas for rent, spread throughout the whole mainland and the little islands too: “home” is one of the most important values of Sicilian culture, and there is no point in visiting this enchanting place if you won’t be able to feel “at home”.

Our houses are all set in exclusive and charming corners of the island: from the seashore to the countryside, from the most beautiful archaeological sites to the world-famous wine districts. Delicate scents and flavors, amazing shades of color and a lively local culture will always be all around you – both inside and outside the Sicily villa you chose for your holiday.

Our Sicily beach villas are the best for beach life lovers. Beautiful sea houses just a few steps from the legendary Mediterranean sea with its crystal-clear waters, with rocky or sandy beaches and a charming seabed that will delight any scuba-diving enthusiast: from the tropical San Vito Lo Capo sandy beach to the rocky shore of the little island of Favignana, our selection meets the expectations of sea lovers.

Sicily is also home of some of the most precious and famous archaeological sites in the world: from the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento to the archeological park in Syracuse (both UNESCO World Heritage Sites), as well as the beautiful evidences of the Sicilian Baroque, such as the city centre of Catania. Our historical villas in Sicily have been selected in order to let you experience the ancient magnificence of Sicily during every moment of your stay.

And if it’s a wild, unspoilt environment you are looking for, with a touch of glamour, check our catalogue of Pantelleria villas: this tiny little island right in the middle of the Mediterranean, within the Trapani district, is one of the most exclusive destinations in Italy. Our “dammusi”, the typical houses of this island, have been hand-picked in order to give you a secluded accommodation within its wild and beautiful landscape.

…And then, what is life without the pleasures of taste? If it’s a food and wine experience you are mainly looking for in Sicily, you’ll have plenty to choose. Our wonderful and cozy Marsala holiday rentals are fully equipped and well organized, and set within a prosperous wine district: vineyards surround the houses and the elegant historic centre of the city is full of pretty bars and cellars where you’ll be able to taste the most delicious products of the area.

We strongly believe in always giving our guests our top service: this is one of the reasons why we decided to start a blog. We are happy to share with you our expertise and our sincere love towards this island: it’s what we do, every day.
